Fantasy and Reality in Asheville, North Carolina (A0030492)Keith Dotson Photography
Black and white photograph of a fantastical carved frieze on the exterior of 48 Patton Avenue in downtown Asheville, North Carolina. The sweeping fantasy of the mythical creatures and iconic figures contrasts (and clashes) with the reality of the stacks of paperwork seen in the windows of the modern law office that inhabits the building.
Built in 1895, the Drhumor Building (pronounced "drummer") features a set of carved faces, believed to have been modeled by local citizens, created by English sculptor Frederick Miles, who also worked on the nearby Biltmore Estate.
